Gary Lynch is the President of Unifor 16-0 says while they Unifor members are committed to the strike, after several months, it's starting to take its toll.
Lynch emphasized that this is not about money, but rather the working conditions at the mine
Unifor alleges the company has been demanding concessions that include mandatory overtime, reduced benefits, and a weakening of contracting-out provisions.
Lynch adds that the community support has been amazing, and they couldn't keep up their efforts without the support of Huron and Bruce residents.
